Server virtualization is a method of running multiple independent virtual operating systems on a single physical computer. It is a way of maximizing physical resources to maximize the investment in hardware and offers many benefits to organizations such as cost and energy savings.
Although virtualization offers many benefits to the IT operations, it brings its own share of complexities too. It makes it tougher for IT administrators to troubleshoot application and system performance and provides low visibility into business transaction flow, which might lead to disruption of key business processes.
Without a proper virtualization monitoring solution in place, the complexities of managing virtual environments can be quite overwhelming for IT operations. This is where ManageEngine Applications Manager can help. It offers monitoring capabilities that go beyond plain virtualization monitoring.
Applications Manager provides deep dive application component monitoring which covers application servers, databases, servers, VMware, web transactions, etc. and helps manage the physical, virtual and cloud components of a heterogeneous IT environment. This provides IT administrators with valuable insight into the health and performance of virtual servers as well as the virtual hosts configured in those servers. With the aid of comprehensive performance metrics as well as in-depth reports, IT administrators can ensure their virtual systems are performing at their peak, and can quickly identify any virtual machines consuming excess server resources and take corrective action.
Applications Manager also offers extensive capabilities for monitoring the physical and cloud services in an IT environment, providing administrators with a single tool to monitor their physical, virtual and cloud systems. The end-user experience monitoring capabilities of Applications Manager help administrators to keep track of the user experience, both before and after virtualization.
